Living New Deal

John Langley Howard (1934) “California Industrial Scenes” - Coit Tower mural (Detail)
"In the depths of the Great Depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt promised the American people a 'New Deal.' Over the decade 1933-43, a constellation of federally sponsored programs put millions of jobless Americans back to work and helped to revive a moribund economy. The result was a rich landscape of public works across the nation, often of outstanding beauty, utility and craftsmanship."
